Most Earth like planet Found: Are we alone?

“European astronomers have found the most Earth-like planet outside our solar system, and here’s what it might be like to live there.

The “sun” wouldn’t burn brightly. It would hang close, large and red in the sky, glowing faintly like a charcoal ember. And it probably would never set if you lived on the sunny side of the planet.

You could have a birthday party every 13 days because that’s how fast this new planet circles its sun-like star. But watch the cake — you’d weigh a whole lot more than you do on Earth.

You might be able to keep your current wardrobe. The temperature in this alien setting will likely be a lot like Earth’s — not too hot, not too cold.

And that “just right” temperature is one key reason astronomers think this planet could conceivably house life outside our solar system. It’s also as close to Earth-sized as telescopes have ever spotted. Both elements make it the first potentially habitable planet besides Earth or Mars”

But I still think that living on a new planet might just be a dream. This new planet is 120 trillion miles away from Earth. So escaping the boundaries of Solar system in manned Air craft might be too far fetched let alone to live on new planet BUT no one believed 100 years ago that we could escape boundaries of earth so I might be wrong but this discovery does raise the interesting prospect of other life in Universe.
